Churches

 
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
— 1 Corinthians 12:27, New International Version
 

'Our mission is to support the Church .... ' 

Stable One came into existence to help churches work together to minister to those experiencing homelessness in our community. As an organisation we are seeking to equip the church and to provide the necessary coordination and facilitation for ecumenical projects.

We have been working hard since August 2016 to bring our Christian community together - to pray and also to act. The 2017 Winter Night Shelter pilot project was our first big effort and took an enormous amount of work (read about it here). On the back of a successful pilot and plenty of learning, we ran a second Winter Night Shelter in 2018 (read the project summary here).

Stable One has put together a Tool Kit for churches who are interested in running their own Winter Night Shelter. It contains practical information, along with sample forms, policies and procedures and role descriptions.

We would like to freely share these resources to give others a head start. We can also offer support to other programs by attending meetings, giving advice, assisting with training and supporting coordinators. Contact jenny@stableone.org for more details.

 
You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength and love your neighbour as yourself.
— Jesus
